    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Hi Mellwilliams and Welcome -

    Sorry to hear about your battles with high blood pressure. Please be sure to talk with your doctor about other treatment options.

    To spark some questions for your doctor and suggestions for controlling your blood pressure see this resource -

    Do you mind sharing what your pressures have been?
